When the season kicks off, Gianna Helena Charters is ready to take you offshore. Based out of Montauk, NY, you’ll have access to some of the East Coast’s premier fishing destinations. Whether you’re looking to hit the famous inshore fisheries of the Long Island Sound or you fancy heading further out to the Atlantic, Captain Lou has you covered. A lifelong angler, his experience is unrivaled, and he’s happy to show you all the best fishing grounds.

The spacious 25’ Parker pilothouse is the perfect vessel to explore these productive waters. Strong and sturdy, she can handle the deepest offshore water and is equally comfortable in the shallows. Capt. Lou takes pride in the boat’s appearance and ensures that she’s detailed regularly. Up to 4 guests are welcome aboard for an exciting adventure in pleasant confines.

Every trip is tailored to your needs, so head offshore for some deep sea fishing, or stay nearshore and target some trophy-sized, delicious fish. Get in touch with your captain to let him know what kind of fishing you want to do. Using live bait, you’ll bottom fish or troll as you target a range of exciting fish. Tough-fighting and delicious in taste, Striped Bass, Tautog, Flounder, and Seabass will provide for a thrilling day, as well as a great reward afterward.

Capt. Lou will clean and prepare your catch when you get back to shore, so you’ll be ready to cook right away. There’s really nothing for you to do except sit back, and enjoy your day on the water. Bring your own snacks and drinks aboard – just make sure there’s no glass bottles – and settle in for a memorable day. Gianna Helena Charters is waiting to take you away.
